The elegant Maheshwari saree was first created in Madhya Pradesh's Maheshwar in the 18th century. Originally fashioned of only pure silk, cotton yarn was added to the weft of these sarees over time. It is reported that Queen Ahilyabai Holkar commissioned the designers of Surat and Malwa to create a beautiful nine-yard drape. She wanted to give them as gifts to visiting royals and relatives; these later developed into what is now known as Maheshwari sarees.
The Maheshwari saree's border pattern is typically reversible. On both sides, the pattern appears to be the same. Degummed mulberry silk yarn is used for the warp, while the cotton yarn is used for the weft. In comparison to Chanderi Saree, these sarees are thicker and more compact. Typically, the body of the saree has no extra threads used for design.
Designs of Maheshwari Sarees
Maheshwari sarees are woven in five different ways: plain weaves in Chandrakala and Baingani Chandrakala, as well as striped and checkered weaves in Chandtara, Beli, and Parbi. The saree's pallu includes a reversible border composed of Surat-sourced gold and silver zari thread. The designs on the sarees are woven in gold, silver, or copper-colored zari threads and are applied to the fabric using the extra-weft process. The gemstone embellishments lend sparkle and shimmer to the patterns. Patterns such as chatai (mat), chameli (jasmine), rui phool (cotton flower), hans (swan), heera (diamond), leheriya (wave), and Narmada are common patterns drawn from temple architecture and decoration (river).
